The Most Popular Dog Breeds In Mexico

The dog that most people in Mexico own is not a breed. By a pretty big spread, that title goes to the "mestizo" or mixed-race person.

1. Mestizo

Many of them were saved because Mexico has a lot of wild dogs.


It is probably the dog breed that most people think of when they think of the country.

2. Chihuahua

Chihuahuas are small dogs that act like they are much bigger than they are.


These active, friendly dogs are from Germany, but now about 7% of all pet dogs in Mexico are of this breed.

3. Schnauzer

Schnauzers are good family dogs because they are playful and strong enough to be friends for kids.


Poodles are popular pets in Mexico because they are thought to be one of the smartest dog breeds.

4. Poodle

About 4% of all dogs are of this type. The Poodle has a curly body that is hypoallergenic and can be black, white, or apricot.


Yorkshire Terriers are not just pretty faces. Because they are small and don't shed much, they are the perfect pet for a small room.

5. Yorkshire Terrier

Even though Yorkies may look like house dogs, they all act like terriers.
